Cameos a'plenty as Taylor struts around a candy-coated and a proudly LGBT-friendly trailer park, but the topline item is an appearance by Katy Perry, thereby officially (and literally) squashing one of pop's biggest beefs in the name of this prominent push for Equality.
The snakes are now butterflies as Taylor Swift enters a decidedly upbeat phase in this elaborate video — which is kind of like a day-glo, cotton candy, poppy version of Midnight In Paris, with a major supporting role by Brandon Urie of Panic! At The Disco.
Get ready to play a game of "Will the real Taylor Swift please stand up?" in this tricky and twisty sci-fi bonanza directed TSwift's visual assassin Joseph Kahn. The plot involves the pop star's current incarnation confronting cyborg replicant that's more than ready to break out her glass box and start kicking some ass on her behalf. Ready for it?
"Look What You Made Me Do" may not settle the question of who the "real" Taylor Swift is, but it has a load of fun as she and director Joseph Kahn go for a multiple personalies concept played out in a series of massive set-pieces, each of which is bigger than most entire music videos.
Taylor Swift returns with a lyric videos delighting in their ability to reference Saul Bass, but mainly just delighting her massive fanbase who will devour this lyric video produced with her longrunning visual assassin Joseph Kahn.
I've said it before, but every artist that breaks through to an arena level deserves to make their own version of the "Home Sweet Home" on-the-road video. Of course, Taylor Swift way above even that level of success, and she's also savvy enough to make clear she believes that the fans are just as important as the person on stage.
